Aladdian Revisited

A couple of weeks ago I some how bruised the back of my right hand between my thumb and my wrist. Although the bruise is gone the spot still remains very tender. I am constantly bumping it against something. That being said, as I am right handed it has been very painful to hold a shuttle and tat. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a try again. It's taken a few different tatting sessions to complete but here is my second attempt at Aladdian from Jon's Snowflake Collection.

I originally posted it here in Sherry's, aka LadyShuttleMaker's size 20 "Spring Poppy" HDT. It seemed to colorful to be a snowflake so I made it again using Marilee's, aka Yarnplayer, size 50 "Snowflake" HDT. In addition to the difference in size, the real difference is how it goes from "motif" like to being a "snowflake".

Off to get ready for work.

Happy Friday all!

#13s of 25 Motif Challenge

So far I have made 3 snowflakes from Jon's Snowflake Collection.

They are in the order I made them and are as follows:
Sunburst, made from Marilee's, aka Yarnplayer, size 50 "Snowflake" HDT

The Twirly, made from Marilee's, aka Yarnplayer, size 30 "Peace" HDT

Aladdian, made from Sherry's, aka LadyShuttleMaker, size 20 "Spring Poppy" HDT

I would recommend Jon's book to anyone who is interested. They were alot of fun to make. Because my tatting time is so limited, they took me the better part of 2 weeks to make. But seriously each one takes no time at all to make. I am considering these as one Motif as they are all snowflakes.

**TEASER*** This week I will try to make the time to do a blog post showing you something very special that I recieved in the mail last week.

That's all for today.

Happy Tatting!
